The HiDEF programme, funded by the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) researches the essential elements of a decentralised system that could be implemented over the period 2025 to 2050, to enable all end users to participate in system operation and real-time energy markets.
The HiDEF programme has 5 workstreams:

  • Decentralised Energy

  • Decentralised Control

  • Decentralised Network Infrastructure

  • Decentralised Participation

  • Decentralised Policy and Macro Impact Assessment.
